The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) has appointed Nigel Base as commercial vehicle development manager.
Base joins SMMT from his most recent role as aftermarket director at a premium truck manufacturer and will be responsible for strengthening the standing of the UK commercial vehicle sector.
The role will continue to build positive relationships between UK-based commercial vehicle manufacturers and industry bodies.
Base said: “SMMT has a unique place at the centre of the automotive industry. This new role gives me the opportunity to work with our members, the CV industry, other industry bodies and government to ensure that we present a united position on behalf of our members and that the importance of commercial vehicles to the UK economy is recognised.”
